I'm attempting to set up a staging server for a live EE powered website. I decided to use xampp but I'm having problems getting everything working.
On the live website EE's control panel links look like this
But on my staging setup the same link looks like this
The result is an immediate refresh back to the main page of the control panel: I'm unable to navigate further.
I've updated the config.php, index.php, database.php files with the correct paths. Does anyone have any experience with an issue like this?
